Frost & Sullivan Reveals New Technology Opportunities in Mexico's Disrupting Energy Sector

The inaugural GIL 2016: Mexico event will introduce Innovative Practices, Digital Advances and the Convergence of ICT and Energy

MEXICO CITY, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy has been the driver of Mexico's economy. In recent years a series of reforms have revolutionized the country's energy sector transforming electricity, oil and gas markets.  With the end of the 75 years state monopoly over oil, Mexico now stands poised with a platform to envision the next stage of development. As proliferation of connected devices and emerging innovations leads to an oncoming wave of digital transformation in the energy and other sectors, the country is looking ahead to welcome new business opportunities.

On the 2nd of March, 2016, Frost & Sullivan's Growth Innovation and Leadership 2016: Mexico congress will become the exclusive platform to explore emerging opportunities fueled by digital disruption and convergence. Eminent industry leaders and visionaries of the region along with the GIL Global community will gather at the Four Seasons Hotel, Mexico City to prioritize Mexico's competitive dimensions and leverage collaborative opportunities.

''Mexico has the fastest growing economy in the LATAM region which offers unique growth opportunities for both Mexican companies and foreign companies looking to invest in the Mexican market. GIL Mexico will offer valuable insights and networking experiences to help these companies drive innovation and implement successful strategies in this vibrant market,'' comments Art Robbins, Frost & Sullivan Americas President and Partner.

The global conference will embark its journey in Mexico by focusing on the technological advances that have disrupted and transformed Mexican industries and the next steps to leverage them.  Highlighting the success stories of tech startups and innovation in manufacturing and energy sectors, GIL Mexico will inspire new strategic imperatives.

Thought leaders will present their insights through exclusive keynotes and industry presentations. Ignacio Perrone, Frost & Sullivan Telecom Industry Manager, will open the Technology Think Tank by discussing the digital transformation in the Mexican energy sector and the new business opportunities it offers.

"Amid a scenario of very low prices and challenging margins, energy operators are more than ever focused on increasing operational efficiency. Since the introduction of digital technologies into daily operations is key to achieve that, we understand a considerable portion of the investment arriving to the Energy Industry in Mexico will be allocated to IT solutions," explains Perrone.

With more than 100 key decision makers representing multiple industries in attendance, the experience will fuel the growth initiatives for tomorrow and offer an exclusive networking opportunity.
